Thank You very much for your valuable inputs....
Your answers have increased by curosity regaarding this concept...Can I putforth another question to seniors , as to whether referrals and employee refferals can be used as synonyms terms????
I was browzing through a lot of books..and I came upon some surprising observations...
The foreign authors refer to refferals as a process whereby vacancies are promoted and filled by recommendations rather than by traditional methods such as direct classified job advertisements or by employing a headhunter.According to them refferals can be through current employees which we refer to as employee referrals...it can also be through different agencies.. experts...or other peer referral systems....
The Indian counterparts refer to referrals and employee referrals as synonymous terms...According to them employee refferals are internal sources of recruitment because its the employes of the organization who refer such candidates.....
From the above observation can we conclude that employee referrals are internal sources of recruitment but when we consider referrals per se it can be treated as an external source of recruitment.
Awaiting comments and Responses.....
Thanks and Regards

First of all I want apology from you and other respected members that I have answered your post without any deep thought.
Employee Referral is purely an external source of recruitment as you will recruit the talent from outside, recommended by your existing employees, on the other hand internal source of recruitment is on the basis of HRIS (Human Resource Information System) or human resource inventory, in which you have all the skill and knowledge sets of your employees within your organization.
Pls correct me If i am wrong this time also.

But I want to differ in this as we are discussing whether employee referral is an internal or external source, it can be internal because the company gets to know about the prospective candidates from an internal source i.e. existing employees.But hiring is done externally.
